This can be used with any chapter in any novel. Students summarize, record new words, ask questions, select an important quote and make connections to the theme or lesson in the novel. Students complete this form as seatwork and bring with them to guide literature circle/book club discussions. I have also created an Active Reader's Thinking Guide that students use as a resource when filling out the active readers template. It explains the expectations for each section of the template. This can be used as seatwork in preparation for literature circles/guided reading groups or as a homework assignment.
